Teen, 17, pleads guilty to role in fatal robbery

The teenager accused in a fatal June robbery pleaded guilty Friday morning to his role in the crime.

Omar Ruffin, now 17, was charged as an adult with felony murder and attempted armed robbery after he and 18-year-old Jaqueze Dandridge tried to rob two men on the porch of a south-side home.

Dandridge, armed with a pellet gun, was shot to death by one of the men who was able to get to his own handgun after a brief struggle.

Originally charged with felony murder, Ruffin’s plea agreement with prosecutors calls for an executed prison sentence of no more than 15 years on a single charge of aiding in an attempted armed robbery.
